are you using the Cisco Gigastack ? or 5484s?

I'd be reluctant to have that many ports in one vlan.

right, but what kind of gbics 5484s? or the giga stack (cisco proprietary)

you can daisy chain the cisco proprietary all over the place, but it requires special cables.

with the 5484's i would suggest a "core" switch like a 3508, and run each connected switch off that. be careful about setting up STP.

I don't know about a maximum, in theory or otherwise, but I've got a LAN running nicely with 6 3548 via GBICs.. Of course not all the ports are in use, but had around 200 nodes running fine at one point.


The first and last 3548 are connected to the core 6509.
